Kongde Peak (6,011 m.) climbing also famous as Kangde Ri and is technically a difficult peak climbing in Nepal. Kongde Peak (6,011 m.) stands above the Bhote Koshi River on the eastern end of the Ramdunj Himal with its striking multi summated ridge. Ramdunj Himal is a part of the Rolwaling Himal massif. This peak was first sumitted by a Nepalese expedition led by Kumar Khagdar and Bikram Shah in 1975. All of the routes climbed to date on the Kwangde Peaks are difficult, none have proved suitable for commercial trekking peak expeditions. The routes on the North Face are particularly difficult and reflect recent developments in lightweight Himalayan climbing, with an emphasis on technical difficulty.
Kongde Peak (6,011 m.) climbing starts after we take a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla airport and start trekking towards Phakding. Our trekking trail takes us all the way through the Khumbu region passing beautiful rhododendron forests, famous monasteries yak pasture lands, beautiful mountains, and rugged topography towards the Namche bazaar. Kongde Peak (6,011 m.) is situated just above this famous Sherpa village a gate way to Khumbu region. The northern part of the mountain forms an impressive barrier having several steep ridges to the north. From Namche bazaar we start ascending up to reach Kwangde base camp at 4,700 m. From the base camp we climb up through some glaciers and steep rocky faces to approach the summit of the peak. This peak contains several fascinating summits among them the actual summit ranging from south-east are summit of Nup (6,035 m./19,799 ft.), Kwangde Lho (6,187m.), Kwangde Shar (6,093 m.) and several lower summits terminating to Nupla (5,885 m.).
Kongde Peak (6,011m.) climbing is indeed a technically difficult and demanding trekking peak that requires pre climbing experience.
